Welcome to Harts & Pearls Intro to Fashion Design class taught by Desiree' Alford, the owner, and creator of Harts & Pearls.
Desiree' attended Fashion Design and Merchandising school at FIDM in Los Angeles, CA and then continued on her studies in San Diego, CA at San Diego Christian College in Business Administration and Women's Ministry. She has a HUGE heart for fashion, women, and anything business.
Desiree' started her hair accessories business from nothing in 2011-- She was a single mom with a couple of hundred dollars in her bank account but she was rich in determination to find a way to stay home with her brand new baby girl, Hartley. After getting a ton of compliments on the hair accessories she was making for her baby, she decided to take a huge leap of faith and start her own business.
Harts & Pearls, named after Desiree's daughter, took off quick and 8 years later she has had the ability to hone in on both her business and design skills. She is an expert in the field of textiles, pattern making, fashion design, color theory, hair accessory design, sewing, and all things social media as it relates to her online business. Not only will you get to learn from one of the best, but you will have the ability to pick her brain, something we all like to do, anytime we get the chance!
Harts & Pearls now retails in over 300 boutiques and salons across the US, ships to every state in the US, and 8 different countries. Desiree' is passionate about what she does and now is going to take the skills she has developed, over the last 20 years of college and building her business, to teach you an Intro Into Fashion Design.
